CHICAGO, May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Saint James School of Medicine, a top rated Caribbean based medical school, announced today the opening of its third campus located on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent.

For the past 14 years, the Saint James School of Medicine group of medical schools has provided accessible, affordable and quality education to over 2,500 students. Offering an MD program designed to prepare students for the United States Medical Licensure Examination (USMLE), and residency in the US and Canada, Saint James provides the foundation for a successful medical career. With the launch of its new campus, Saint James now has three campuses located in St. Vincent, Bonaire and Anguilla.

The newly opened campus gives motivated students the opportunity to realize their dream of a medical career all while enjoying the beautiful island of St. Vincent, the largest of the group of islands that make up the St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It also has the largest population of the islands where Saint James has its campuses, with over a hundred thousand people and a good infrastructure to support this. Popular American chains such as KFC and Pizza Hut, located in the same neighborhood as the new campus, give students a sense of familiarity, reminding them that they are not too far from home. Whether it's a visit to the Botanic Gardens, hiking through the mountainous terrain marked by rivers, rapids and waterfalls or relaxing on one of the prominent black sand beaches, students will enjoy all of what St. Vincent has to offer in addition to a quality education.

"As the demand for qualified physicians escalates, medical schools limit the number of students, and the cost of medical education increases," said Raj Mitra, Saint James' Vice President of Enrollment. "Saint James School of Medicine's continued growth will fulfill a vital role in providing quality healthcare in the US and Canada."
